ソロモンの偽証(Solomon's Perjury)

読書備忘録 Reading Memo

「ソロモンの偽証」宮部 みゆき (著)
"Soromon no gishō (Solomon's Perjury)"
Author: Miyuki Miyabe

備忘録(感想):  Memo (what I felt ):
"Soromon no gishō (Solomon's Perjury)" consists of 3 Parts across 6 Volumes (paperback edition): Part I 'Jiken (Incident)' Volume 1 & 2; Part II 'Ketsui (Determination)' Volume 3 & 4; and Part III 'Hōtei (The Courtroom)' Volume 5 & 6, all of which were fun to read and worth reading, though it took a lot of time for me to read through all 6 volumes

各巻頭に登場人物の相関図が出てくるほど「ソロモンの偽証」には多くの人物が登場するのですが、それでも それぞれの登場人物の心の内がしっかりと捉えられ、見事に描写されています。ストーリー運びも本当に面白く、睡眠時間を削って一気に読んでしまいました!(←以前「名もなき毒」の読書備忘録でも記載したとおりですね )まあ、図書館から借りていた本だったので、返館期限も迫っており せっせと読む必要性もあった訳ですが…
At the beginning of each volume, a character diagram is shown for readers' convenience to organize character information, since many characters appear in Solomon's Perjury! Despite there being many characters, each character and his/her internal emotion are well described by the author. The story line is very fascinating and thus I could not stop reading. I cut out my sleeping time to read through the books, as I did the same way when reading "Namonaki Doku (Nameless Poison)" written by the same author. To be honest, I had a deadline to read all the volumes anyway, since I borrowed those books from a city library

I think the author, Miyuki Miyabe, is really great and smart!! She has a brilliant insight and is able to see things from multiple points of view Amazing!!

登場人物に関して「こんな中学生はいない」等々の読者コメントも見かけましたが、確かに こんなに頭の切れる中学生は滅多にいないでしょう。でも、この行動の熱さは中学生ならではかな と私は思いました (高校生以上になると、反応はもっと冷めているような…。)
I saw some readers' comments which said there could not be such smart junior high-school students as the characters in the story. I agree with that, however, their power and energy to investigate the cause of a friend's death result from their purity and such purity is specific to youngsters like junior high-school students, I think  (If they were not junior but senior high-school students, the reaction toward this case might be different, might be more rational... )

Followings are the links to and outlines from AMAZON about Solomon's Perjury, all 6 Volumes Please try and read if you are interested, definitely my recommendation
